AAM Now Supervises Approximately $9.97 Billion in UIT Assets

MONUMENT, COLO.—June 17, 2014— Advisors Asset Management (AAM), a leading investment solutions provider, announces that its Advisors Corporate Trust (ACT)-Navellier/Dial High Income Opportunities Portfolios (ACTOTX) have surpassed $1.5 billion in sales. 

The ACT-Navellier/Dial High Income Opportunities Portfolios are unit investment trusts (UITs) that attempt to deliver high current interest income and capital preservation by investing primarily in investment-grade corporate bonds. The portfolios were selected by Navellier & Associates, Inc. with assistance from Dial Capital Management, LLC. All bonds in the portfolios were selected only after determining that their issuers potentially had sufficient cash flow and financial stability to meet their obligations over various economic scenarios. 

“In light of the ongoing low-interest-rate environment, we believe these UITs continue to be an attractive option for advisors seeking to provide their clients with income for retirement,” said Richard A. Stewart, CFA, Senior Vice President and UIT Product Manager at AAM, which supervises $9.97 billion in UIT assets as of May 31, 2014. 

“There are many fixed-income investment opportunities in the current low-interest-rate environment, and our partnership with AAM has allowed us to take our strategy for capitalizing on those opportunities to a wide array of advisors,” said Louis Navellier, Chief Investment Officer and Chief Executive Officer of Navellier & Associates. “AAM’s strong distribution capabilities have been crucial to these UITs’ success, and we look forward to continuing to harness AAM’s national presence to grow assets.” 

The ACT-Navellier/Dial High Income Opportunities Portfolios provide investors with exposure to a variety of investment-grade corporate bonds without the challenge of building this type of portfolio on their own. In 2014, 10 different series of these Trusts terminate. There have been no defaults in these portfolios’ five-year existence, and their ability to provide a steady monthly income stream has made them an important component of many clients’ portfolios.  Please note that past performance is no guarantee of future results.

“We are proud to be involved helping AAM and Navellier & Associates bring such an innovative, timely, and highly successful investment opportunity to market,” said Michael Lanier, Managing Director, Dial Capital Management.
